Wide Open: Implementing a Class Wiki

Dr. Mark Phillipson ('88C), currently an Association of Research Libraries Fellow at Columbia Libraries, will describe his experiences running wikis -- communally authored websites -- in English courses he has taught at Bowdoin College. This description, centered on his Romantic Audience Project (http://ssad.bowdoin.edu:8668/space/snipsnap-index) will consider the effects of wikis on peer interaction, modes of analysis, notions of authority, and course organization. Detailing his collaboration with educational technologists and librarians, Phillipson will identify crucial areas of support for pedagogical wikis, and invite discussion of comparable projects at Columbia University.
